hi, everyone, i'm beth troutman. we have great videos right this minute. cops say the driver of this car hit a tree and then split the scene. >> oh, there's one more thing. he left his wife behind. >> in the car? >> now hear how she may be paralyzed, but she's kicking his sorry tail to the curb. some elephants are swept down a canal. >> that's got to be a strong current to push an elephant. >> how villagers rise to the task. >> and make a makeshift ladder
into the water. >> see the car towing another car with something flimsy. >> mm-hmm. it doesn't look like a very secure tow. >> wait until it goes around the corner. and it's a hot new concept car. >> i'm still waiting to see the car. >> that's the car. >> oh! >> find out the one feature that makes this ride so special and kind of creepy. >> what do you need this for? it's time to get our show started. gayle has our first video. >> take a look at this car here. oklahoma troopers say that the man driving this car after a new year's party, jerry arthurs, smashed into a tree. witnesses said he had been drinking, he hit a tree, called his friends to come pick him up. oh, there's one more thing. he left his wife behind. that's his wife cheyenne. she has filed for divorce because he left her for dead. >> in the car? >> in the car.
>> oh. geez. >> cheyenne was diagnosed a quadriplegic and even tried to commit suicide, but four months later she is starting to get feeling in his arms, legs and feet. >> i can lift my arms, kick out. i can walk with a walker. not by myself, with assistance. >> four months later after this crash, jerry arthurs is a f fugitive still on the run, but that hasn't stopped him from posting messages on facebook. he basically said i'm clyde, you want me, come and get some. i'm a solo, i lost my bonnie, i'm done. >> he didn't lose his bonnie, he lift his bonnie in a car. >> can barely spell or form english senses as well. >> authorities say he was driving with a suspended
license. >> guy is a winner all the way around. this first appeared on sri lanka tv. what you are seeing is a group ofephantsaw current of a canal. >> that's got to be a strong current to be able to push an elephant. >> elephants can swim. i think they got so deep that they couldn't touch any longer and it started carrying them as they tried to swing. >> all you see is the trunk. >> that's bad. >> you can see the citizens are getting really involved in this process. what they take, it looks like sticks. they start poking and prodding at the elephants to physically push them out from underneath this bridge. >> you have another elephant being swept towards the waterfall. >> is he trying to get up there on the ledge? that's what it looks like. i will show you this again. this is the most heartbreaking part of this video. >> that's an elephant fighting for his life right there.
he is giving every ounce of energy that he has. >> and think about how many hundreds of pounds he is trying to get up there, all those people are hanging around. >> watch what these citizens come together and do. you see them right here pulling together what looked like some thick branches or some small trees. they get these incredibly thick ropes and make a makeshift ladder into the water so that the elephant can get a foothold and crawl out. >> watch as he crawls his way out of this canal, the citizens then kind of shoot off some flares. just to make sure the elephant runs back towards the plain rather than towards the canal again. >> that was really amazing of those townspeople. they were really fighting against time. >> seems like they knew exactly what they were doing. all sorts of inmates in new mexico prisons have come up with a kind of interesting way to communicate with one another. but the prisons are not happy
about it they're using an age-old aztec language. >> what? >> yeah. >> letters being sent in, sent out, over the streets, there's phone calls. here's what this language looks like. the people who work in these prisons are doing their best to learn this language themselves. >> by us being diligent, trying to learn this language, that's how we, you know, combat that type of activity. >> there's 30 inmates being investigated because of this right now. they think they're trying to sort of assemble a gang within prison walls by using this ancient aztec language. >> all they're try doing is get over us, get over the system. >> they're also saying with the letters, inmates can call shots outside the prison walls about drugs or guns. >> why not spend time doing something effective rather than
in prison? use that knowledge and brain power to do something great for mankind instead of using this to create gangs. >> if the number of gang members increase in prison, then the violence in penitentiaries rise. that means violence out in the streets could rise as well. for this woman, letting the cleaning crew into her home became a complete nightmare. >> it's been a very difficult experience for me and my daughter. >> robin lori scheduled the cleaning crew to arrive. when they arrived they opened the door, but the family's pet ran out and escaped running into traffic and being hit by a car. >> oh. >> oh, no. >> you would expect the cleaning crew to take some action. you would expect someone to call robin or to came a vet, take the pet to the vet. instead, they took her and put
her under the dining room table. didn't say a word. >> to try to pretend it wasn't their fault? like this dog got squished under the table. >> i don't think it's their fault the dog got out. if you know you have a cleaning crew coming to the house and you have a dog that tends to run when the door is opened, maybe keep the dog in the crate or notify these guys and say, look, our dog likes to run out the front door. >> robin said she offered the cleaning crew to take the dog with her when she was out of the home. they said, no she's fine, you can leave her. so they knew there was a pet in the home. she did not survive the acciden accident. >> you don't think it was their fault but courts in colorado thought it was and awarded robin $65,000. >> i think it's their fault that they didn't do something about it. a cop stops traffic for --
